Ten Things That Got Done Today: October 10th, 2013

  1. The girls got their hair combed & bowed. It's usually either them or me. Rarely do all three of us leave the house with tidy hair these days. 
  2. I quarrelled with my husband. Our heated topic today? Chicken coops. {No worries, though. All is well.}
  3. We enjoyed an autumnal walk to the Dinosaur Park. Justin met us for lunch at the park. I made us cucumber chicken sandwiches. Girls had PB&Js.  It rained on us a bit during the walk home. 
  4. I vacuumed the house. While three babies slept. For the win!*
  5. I started reading something my sister wrote. Hmm...there is fun news here that is not mine to share, so I won't. What I will say, however, is a brag about my sister {forgive me, I can't help myself}: There are many people in this world who can write a book, and many do it well. Then there are people who are so gifted in writing that nothing describes them as well as to simply say that they are wordsmiths. The best writers say so much while using so few words. This is my sister, not just a writer, a wordsmith. Haha...NOT ME! Look at how long #5 is. {Proud of her.} 
  6. Changed 4 poopy diapers {sorry}. Cleaned up 3 spit ups {making today really light in the spit-up department}. Pumped 7 ounces {for our walk}. I skillfully placed this lame one about me right after talking about how awesome my sister is, and now I'm about to follow this one with...
  7. I made this for dinner in the amazing new technicolor Crock-Pot . It was a total plate-licker, thanks for suggesting it, Lauren! 
  8. Read this blog post today. And I really needed that today. 
  9. Wrote this blog post. It will count for something as soon as I hit "Publish". 
  10. Watched Now You See Me with my husband after the girl pies went to bed. 
Things I didn't get done today...

  1. My hair. I looked like a hot mess at the playground. 
  2. I might have broken the vacuum.* {Justin, can you take a look at it?}
  3. A few business emails.
  4. Homeschooling didn't get done today. That's okay, we'll make up for it tomorrow and do a double. The girls love it anyway. 
Now...I don't have ten photos {What?! Light on the photos for once? Am I ill?} but here are a few from my cell phone that were taken today. {I have been in a funk lately though, if I'm being honest.} Enjoy and have a great weekend!
